Custom BIG Enclosure Ventilation

I'm building a custom HDPE enclosure for my boy Ozai - it'll be 9ft long, 2ft wide, and 2ft high. How much ventilation do you think I should add? I'm thinking a 2in x 9ft screen strip in front that goes along the upper edge above the doors and maybe a vertical 3in strip in the front center - think that would be good or do I need more on the sides? Or is it too much? It'll be up against a wall so I think anything in the back would be pretty useless.

I'd put vents on the ends too so there is cross ventilation. You can can find screened vents at home depot, just cut a hole and pop them in. Lots of sizes to choose from.

This is Atlas, he's my 3 year male leatherback. i don't know whether to be worried as he has no femoral pores what so ever, not even small ones! i always thought they would come with age but he is getting a bit older now and i'm starting to worry. here are some photos of his lack of pores. if someone could let me know if this is healthy that would be greatly appreciated!!
